"I can have the same things that I had before, but my diet's totally changed," she says. "I don't want all the foods that I wanted before, and I do go to the gym now."
Carol says she now reaches for fruit instead of candy bars when she opens the refrigerator. "I just don't want it. I don't have the cravings for it," she says. "It's changed my eating habits totally to healthier food. I make better choices now, and I have more energy."
Since her surgery, Carol says she's able to do things she hasn't done in years...like mow the grass!
